The Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov wrote a letter of resignation. The portal Vesti.ua writes about this with reference to a source in the Servant of the People faction in the Verkhovna Rada.
It is specified that the Ukrainian parliament will consider his statement at a meeting on July 15.
In June 2020, the Verkhovna Rada registered a draft resolution on the dismissal of Arsen Avakov from the post of head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The document was introduced by the Golos faction and was signed by 55 deputies.
Prior to that, the deputy from the Servant of the People party, Yevhen Shevchenko, called on the Ukrainian parliament to dismiss Avakov. According to Shevchenko, all his party members are disappointed in the minister.
Avakov was appointed head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) of Ukraine on February 27, 2014. He became one of two ministers who retained their posts after the resignation of the fifth President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and the election of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
